Nick Diaz has finally broken his silence! Well, kind of… The ever illusive Diaz spoke on last night’s first ever episode of Spike TV’s “MMA Uncensored,” and gave us some clue as to what happened at UFC 143 and what’s going on now.
When asked about the now infamous drug test, Diaz simply replied, “I’m under instruction not to talk about that, or any of this.”
Diaz also announced his retirement after losing to Carlos Condit at UFC 143, but as many suspected, he most likely will be seen back in the cage. As for boxing? That’s not in the cards.
“Well, I never said anything about pursuing boxing. I [haven’t] really said much about anything about what I’m gonna be doing in the future.
I’ve had what feels like a week or so to think about any of this … but I haven’t really put much thought into it. It just feels good to get some workouts in and just try to act normal, I guess.”
As many fans feel, the judging going on in MMA isn’t exactly up to par, but in this case I’m going to have to say Condit won fair and square, sorry Nick.
“Honestly, I felt it was smarter to play it safe and go ahead and push forward and win the rounds,” he expressed. “I’ve lost fights before where I’m landing more punches and I’m moving away from the guy. So, the way that they score things at the end doesn’t seem very consistent to me.
I come back and I learn from my mistakes from last time and it doesn’t really make a difference in the end. So, if anything I proved that this isn’t really working out. Because of all these fights I’ve lost, I’m usually winning the fights. You watch the guys taking more damage.
It’s just kinda irritating to me that we’re awarding people in mixed martial arts for trying to move away and not finish the fight.”
Although this may have not cleared up too much, it’s always interesting to hear what Mr. Diaz has to say.
